    Exclamation Form Data Entry Problem?

    I have designed a form for a safety training database. The form has multiple tabs for information. One for employees personal info, one for company provided training, one for outside training and another for drug screens. I am trying to link the forms so that when I enter info in the first employee info tab then click to the next tabs it knows i'm still on the same person. For some reason when i do this it enters the info in each tab as a new person with a new employee id number. How do i get access to recognize that all the info should stay with the one ID number. The weird thing is, if I enter the employee info then close the form and repon it and go to the next tab it knows its for that person. PLEASE HELP!!

    The data entered has not been saved to the table yet. Maybe saving the record when you switch tabs will work for you. In the TabCtl Change event put:
    If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
    ...and see what happens.
